I may add, that Moses Salomon's wife's first name was most likely not "Betty"(compare the first capital letter with the last name Benjamin), the end to me looks more likesomething like ".ettig", sorry not to be of more help.
It's "Bettÿ", Using different forms of the same letter in a record is sometimes used for emphasis. The entire name "Benjamin" is in a modern form in order to emphasize it. We would now use italics for that purpose.
